July Favourites

Welcome to the last day of July folks! It's been quite a crazy life changing few weeks for me (August now looks beyond exciting) and this month's favourites have all been life savers in getting me to look half decent whilst running around like a headless and very hot chicken...

My ultimate time savers have definitely been the Urban Decay Naked Flushed Palette in 'Streak' and Seche Vite Fast Dry Topcoat. The palette has been shaving several minutes off my morning make up routine as I can do bronzer, blush and highlighter with one brush and one product and the effect is seriously stunning too. Bravo to Urban Decay for picking such perfect shades and also making beauty packing less hassle! The topcoat may not look as pretty but it's just as fabulous at speeding up the pampering process, drying tacky polishes in seconds and making even the cheapest varnish and shoddiest paint job look gelled to perfection. 

The delightful duo of sunshine and stress decided to wreak havoc with my complexion this month (how kind of it), causing me to reach for some serious de-slickers and blemish pickers I usually neglect. I really shouldn't neglect the Una Brennan Deep Clean Pore Purifying Clay Mask however, because it detoxes congested skin in no time at all, visibly drawing out all those nasty impurities from pesky pores and keeping breakouts under control. In the daytime I've been covering the mayhem with Benefit Big Easy, which is genuinely summer base perfection. The cream to powder formula blends effortlessly into the skin with  a great coverage and natural matte finish that helps to keep shine at bay without the cake.

On the brighter end of the spectrum we have the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet in 'Ole Flamingo'. Already an all time favourite lip product, this is flawless- it lasts ALL day long, never transfers, fades evenly and looks absolutely fabulous with it's matte finish and hot pink shade. Long live the liquid lipstick! Another colourful item and my last favourite of the day are PopBands. I randomly picked up a packet of these in Topshop recently and will never look back. They are super cute as hair or arm candy and somehow don't leave kinks in your barnett so you can throw it into a top knot at will without fearing the kinky repercussions. There's something a little '50 shades' about that...

What have you been loving this month?
